Note: Updates of socioeconomic indicators in this format will be phased out. Most of the data is available through ERS’s Atlas of Rural and Small-Town America.
Socioeconomic indicators like the poverty rate, population change, unemployment rate, and education levels vary across the nation. ERS has compiled the latest data on these measures into a mapping and data display/download application that allows users to identify and compare States and counties on these indicators.
